  • 1982 Scania Truck 1/10 scale

    Hello All,

    This is my first post. Wanted to show you the Scania truck I just finished from one of Richard Blizzard's book. It is 1/10 scale. It measures 26"L x 10.25"W x 14" H.

                          Thank you guys for all the great comments. Lance I don't have an exact hour but I would say around 250 hours. I started it on June 12th and finished last Thurs Dec 1st. Almost 6 months. My latest project is a steam freight train. I can post pics in progress if any one is interested.

                              Hello all

                              I am most certainly not someone who would use a scroll saw, I happened upon this thread from a search engine of 'Richard Blizzard Scania'.
                              My reason for visiting? During the 80s as a child, my dad made me the Scania 142e, complete with flat back trailer. He added working leaf springs, and rudimentary lights, Scania paint scheme, etc.
                              He then made the fork lift truck to which he added working lift gear.
                              He then made, from nothing more than the Scania drawings and some brochures, a scale model of a Foden single axle unit, complete with low loader trailer for the FLT.

                              As a child I didn't really understand the significance of what he'd made for me, and proceeded to play with these as though they were of equivalent strength to my Tonka toys. They weren't.
                              Subsequently they succumbed to their fair share of knocks and bangs.

                              I have recently recovered these from a dusty loft, with the intention of bringing them back to some form of former glory. Once I work out how to load pictures to this reply I will add some for your honest opnion.

                              BTW to the original poster, that's a lovely truck.

                                At the time I thought "Ah, spit!" (or words like that) and just threw the blade in the garbage. It was the #5 size blade. I suspect it would cost more to have it done than the cost of a new blade. The owners manual is not very helpful, the wording is awkward, having been 'translated' into...

                                The brazing process doesn't look too bad. I have seen the welders built into the industrial bandsaws, so out of curiosity, I looked that up and that process is pretty cool to watch also, though trying that on something this small would probably light the whole thing up....

                                Jo, I did a bit of research on the web, and there are lots of videos of people silver soldering broken blades. In hindsight I remember I had made a jig eons ago to do just that, when I still had a small Craftsman bench top three wheeler....
